realtor: The Lowest Price Is that the Key? - 03/15/11 03:43 AM
We were in a hurry yesterday with duplicating keys for an estate sale. At the closest hardware store I was directed to an irritated "minimum Wage" employee that reminded me that their price was the lowest. "Cheapest Prices for Cut Keys" he chimed
The second key, they didn't carry that particular blank, but that "More Expensive" fellow up the mall did. At the second store I was greeted by the proprietor who looked at the key to be duplicated and warned about the price of the blank; "I need it". Back to the house to try the key... Expensive one works … (2 comments)

realtor: Larry the Landlord; Sells his Marijuana Grow House - 12/16/10 01:28 AM
Ontario Realtors favour grow-op registry bill The Ontario Real Estate Association is welcoming a private member’s bill before Queen’s Park that calls for the creation of a grow-op registry – a move Realtors say will protect homebuyers. “Grow-ops are major problem for homebuyers in the province and we have been urging the Ontario government to establish a registry to protect consumers for almost 10 years,” the association’s President Dorothy Mason said in a news release published Nov. 25. While Realtors are required by law to disclose if a home has been used as a marijuana-grow operation or drug laboratory, they are … (2 comments)

realtor: The Dollar Store of MLS Shopping - 12/01/10 01:38 AM
Yes! We all want the lowest price. One company has made this their business credo. The Lowest Price is the Law! But for every benefit there is a cost.
With Real Estate Listings I have observed with fascination the brokerages that are racing to offer the lowest prices for just listing a house; [the concept is termed mere listing] We are merely providing a Listing Facility.
Contained within the listing is a Schedule B, The terms and conditions of selling your home.
It usually contains a clause that indicates a) You have the opportunity to seek outside advice [ILA] b) the … (0 comments)

realtor: Trapped him at an Open House - 11/21/10 12:13 PM
Had an open house at Kipling and Bloor this past weekend; the winds are a bit cooler, the leaves have blown off their trees, we have already been visited by frost. It’s the last few weeks with weather warm enough to hang the outside lights. I like Open Houses. It gives me a chance to meet the people in the enclave and those that want the neighbourhood. This house was vacant and staged. Asking $1.2 MM[He] wanders in alone just as I open up, dressed in a shirt without a jacket or coat, takes the feature sheet offered. “Live in the … (6 comments)

realtor: Where is better than Bloor West Village? - 10/16/10 07:47 AM
When is one location superior to another; Ok ok we are firmly in the Bloor West Village Toronto neighbourhood and comparing Beresford to Armadale or is Colbeck a superior location. Is it OK to pay this much money for Runnymede? What about the side of the street to the west of Jane; Where does it become Old Mill? Past the bridge? On the South Side it is called Brule Gardens, the street and neighbourhood is referred to as Riverside Dr., as riverside follows the top and bank south from Baby Point to Lake Ontario at Ellis Avenue. So a ravine lot … (0 comments)

realtor: Lets Update the Toronto Real Estate Market - 10/09/10 10:09 AM
I want to keep you updated with the Fall Toronto Real Estate Market. There have been many negative stories in the media recently about how the market is “slipping” or that “prices in a housing bubble”.
Here is some interesting news that will take another week to be released to the media .... & because it isn’t Headline grabbing doom and gloom, they likely won’t report it. After reviewing the latest sales figures for the Toronto Real Estate Board;
We are continuing in a “SELLER’S MARKET”!
In the entire Toronto area as a whole, we currently have a 3 month’s supply … (2 comments)

It's the doldrums of the warmest summer that I remember in Toronto; the Exhibition is just around the corner and I have fabulous "Front Row" seating for the Air Show on my Terrace. If you had a chance to select again, where and how you live, What different choices would you make? Would you stay in the same neighbourhood? Consider moving closer to work, nearer to Public Transit as we try to green our economy and employment. Do you have rooms you havent's seen in months, for guest that never arrive? Could a condo be in your future? Would you escape … (0 comments)

realtor: Credit report request? DONT LET THESE 'LANDLORDS' FOOL YOU - 07/13/10 08:22 AM
While working through my Google Alerts for Landlord information in Toronto and updates I was drawn to this advertorial (RANT) on Kijiji (an internet advertising site) THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON FOR AN OWNER OF A HOUSE TO REQUEST YOUR CREDIT REPORT - ALSO KNOWN AS YOUR LIFE. It is an EXTREMELY personal file and is only allowed to be requested by authorized individuals, i.e, you have a license to be giving loans/lines of credit which require a credit check or you are employed by a company that involves credit. If anyone feels uncomfortable with this request, no problem. By law, … (5 comments)

If you could have sold it alone.... You would have sold it already
If you haven't been able to attract buyers to see your home and are finding that you are dealing with unqualified people, looky lous that want decorating ideas, couples who are out for a Saturday or Sunday drive just looking at homes incase they decide to buy... Yes, you know your home the best...But the buyers interests and focus are not necessarily the same as yours. You are holding your own open houses but, people are reluctant to give you their name and phone number. They don't … (7 comments)
